Chocolate Chip Pretzel Rods Sprinkled with Almonds

Ingredients
  • 24 pretzel rods
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 cups almonds
Method
  • Combine chocolate chips with vegetable oil and place the bowl on a double boiler.
  • Ensure that the water is not boiling, but is on simmer; we don't want to burn the chocolate.
  • When the chocolate is melting, ensure you continue to stir the mixture.
  • The entire process won't take much time. Once the chocolate melts, dip each of the pretzel halfway through the chocolate syrup.
  • Place the pretzels in a baking sheet that is covered with wax paper.
  • Sprinkle chopped almonds on top and let the chocolate turn solid.
